UFO snapped over Thames (The Sun)…mmmm..NO.

Posted by dandare on February 29, 2008

alienss.jpgIt seems a feature of the Sun, to write any old rubbish about UFOs, and again, they do not disappoint me!

In “UFO snapped over thames” (posted 28th february,2008) they have two photos; one of the london eye, and the other of london bridge, which a student, low and behold took photos of, who did not notice until she looked at them again….and found a ufo in each photo. 

They claim that experts say it is the real deal……. ok, before i sound like a broken record, i can safely say that this is total rubbish i’m afraid….although i did have a good giggle at it (but the ufo subject does take a bashing due to these type articles in a mainstream tabloid newspaper).

A quick glance at both photos for instance, and wouldn’t you know the UFO in both photos are almost at the same angle and size.

 Also, its quite clearly a reflection from the inside of a car.

So, more like a bridge too far, and an eye-ful of nothing.

W.A. Harbinson? Projekt UFO …the case for man-made flying saucers

Posted by dandare on February 29, 2008

ufos
W.A. Harbinson wrote a book in 1995, entitled “Projekt UFO: The case for Man-made Flying Saucers”. I remember, it had some well thought arguments, that basically, there is a ruthless technology right here on earth, and the scenario is definately something that people should be aware of, if not necessarily agree on.

For the record, there is some parts of this book, that i do not agree with, but it does get your mind thinking, questioning and so on, and this can only be a good thing.      

His website can be found here  

The second volume to this, Pheonix: Projekt Saucer Book 2″ is available for free…. at the download page on his site.

I have not read it yet, but will be reading it soon..

Stephenville UFO sightings: More evidence is collected

Posted by dandare on February 26, 2008

ufo online

On saturday 23rd february 2008, MUFON visited Dublin, Texas for a second time, and gathered 17 additional UFO sighting reports. Apart from a few local reporters being present, all other media was not not allowed in, due to some witnesses being intimidated by such a presence (although the history channel’s UFO hunters were present and a reporter from NY times).

According to Angelia Joiner’s article, The chief investigator, Steve Hudgeons, spoke to Ricky Sorrells for nearly 1 hour (he had been interviewed before on the 14th january by another MUFON member).

He then went on to add that through their records, from 1977 - november 2007 there were 400 sighting reports. But from november 2007 to today, there were around 150 reports.

Hudgeons said a final report will be made public, even though there are still ongoing sightings in the area… also a timeline format will be made available on the MUFON site soon, and will include a report on the david Coran video, (on 19/20 jan).

The main report will be available in April, in the MUFON journal; also a news conference will also be held too on the findings.

this article,  i have decided to reproduce in full and can be seen below….

Erath County Officer witnesses UFO

Another law enforcement officer has come forward in the strange and mysterious UFO sightings in Erath County.Sgt. Jim Clifton of the Erath County Sheriff’s Department was with Erath County Constable Lee Roy Gaitan in the early morning hours of Feb. 2 on U.S. Hwy. 377 when both saw something extraordinary in the black sky.“It was a clear night, no clouds, no moon, and a dark night,” Clifton said. “I’ve never seen anything like that before in my career. I’ve never seen any aircraft like that. The lights did not appear to be military. I was very amazed at what we saw.”Clifton said he received a call to check out an alarm at Woody’s restaurant and when he got to the eatery, Gaitan had heard the call also and was already there. The two took care of business and then Gaitan told Clifton there was something in the sky.

“He heard the alarm and got there before I did,” Clifton said. “I got in the car with him and observed this with him. It looked like it was over the Highland area to the west and it was a large object.”

Clifton said they observed the unidentified flying object through the “dash cam” in the car and could see it quite clearly with the zoom feature. He said the camera is in a permanent mount, which is stationary. So, in his eyes, the video is more than credible because shaking the camera could not be a concern.

“To your naked eye it looked like a bright light and I couldn’t really tell if it was moving, but I don’t think it was,” Clifton said. “What it looked like is difficult to describe because there is nothing to compare it to.”

Clifton said the object had a transparent or perhaps translucent appearance and it had ” a fog or vapor or cloud around it.”

Clifton said he saw colors of white, blue, and red.

“I wasn’t frightened – I was just trying to think of what it might be,” Clifton said. “I don’t have a clue. I wish I had an explanation but I can’t think of any explanation. The thing that impressed me was how big it was. It stuck in my mind.”

Clifton said he is looking at the sky more now to try and see it again. He said most people he knows are doing the same.

Clifton said he has seen a video from Canada in what he thinks was the year 2007 that is most similar to what he and Gaitan saw.

Both men said the sighting was reported to the Erath County Sheriff’s office at the time.

Now that just adds to the evidence….. What i immediately see as interesting is “the object had a transparent or perhaps translucent appearance and it had ” a fog or vapor or cloud around it.”

And the fact that he spoke of a similar video sighting from 2007 in Canada; i’ve done a quick scan for such sightings, but unless i’m missing something here, am unable to find what he is referring too….will not give up the hunt though.

Angelia Joiner – gains work at Mandatory FM

Posted by dandare on February 24, 2008

Mandatory FM
According to the Star-Telegram.com, angelia joiner has joined the radio station Mandatory FM (107.9 stephenville,texas, and 98.5 Ranger, TX)…

Please see full article below for details (posted 21st feb,2008)…..

The former Stephenville Empire-Tribune journalist known nationally for her stories about UFO sightings over Texas last month was not kidnapped by the military nor abducted by aliens.

Angelia Joiner says that after working for the newspaper for 18 months, she left a couple of weeks ago to “pursue other avenues,” including the UFO story. Her departure was noted on several blogs with suspicion.

She is now working with several UFO witnesses to start a Web site devoted to uncovering the truth behind the dozens of reports of strange objects flying Jan. 8 over Stephenville, about 70 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Joiner says that she has been hired recently as news director for radio station KCUB/107.9 FM, which touts itself as “your official Stephenville UFO information station” on its Web site.

“Just in the last five days I’ve received 800 e-mails about UFOs,” Joiner said.

Also online: www.stephenvillelights.com

www.mandatoryfm.com 

At the radio station, it mentions that Angelia will be keeping listeners up to date with local sightings.

There are a few UFO  interviews on the home page, worth listening to as well.

The radio station also plays some nice music to boot.

Gets my vote………………. :)

I wish Angelia and the Radio station all the best…

UFO Update (30)

Posted by dandare on February 22, 2008

ufos

There is quite a few updates to get through this week, so here goes…(some of the updates incorporate sightings that i have picked up whilst surfing the net/or missed, so not all are from february/recent reports, but i feel should also be mentioned).

Photobucket

Whilst checking  the website ufobc.ca, i noticed 2 recent reports worth mentioning here.

Green sphere over Vancouver’s westend”  (posted 7th feb,2008); the sighting took place on feb 6th, 2008 at 8.30pm. It mentions

“I happened to be looking out our balcony window, when there was a large round (from my perspective; had the sense it was spherical) green light. The object was enormous and low; probably level with the tenth floor of our building. It’s difficult to gauge it’s size but it appeared to be over False Creek and from my vantage point it looked to be a few hundred feet in diameter. The centre of the object was brilliantly green and the light defused further from the centre. The bizarre thing was that it didn’t diffuse entirely as it radiated, but had a very defined edge. The object appeared, remained for about two seconds, then vanished” (extract from article). It then goes on to a series of questions and answers to the sighting.

The second report was written back in  jan, 2008, “The granisle fog and lights“; it mentions  

“On November… I believe 29th of 2007, I was driving home from town. I had my daughter and her boyfriend with me. It was a perfectly clear night between 6:30 pm and 7 pm. Suddenly there was a fog that came up around us in which we all started talking about because it was so odd. Then, a very bright bluish light lit up around us which really startled us. At that very moment a bright white light shot from the sky at low altitude and could have hit the ground in front of us, but not so that we could see. We were very startled, and nervously chatted along the drive. We drove a ways and there were very bright lights that appeared in front of us. It looked as though I might run right into them and I began to come to a stop. It looked as though they zipped sideways and disappeared” (extract from article). This is just a taster for even more wierd things… the report goes on to mention her diary which starts from the 9th december 2007….and the diary finishes, in this article on january 26th 2008. It is indeed strange.

At abc.net “The paranormal at Penrith draws response from believers” (posted feb 14th,2008). r224006_885419.jpg

It starts…  

“Here’s something not many would know – that Sydney’s south-west, northern beaches and the Penrith-Blue Mountains region are regarded as ‘hot-spots’ for UFO sightings.

Those who believe are already convinced, and their numbers might be boosted as a result of an exhibition featuring UFO inspired art at the Penrith Regional Art Gallery The Visitors – The Australian response to UFO’s and Aliens” (extract from article).

The dailyecho.co.uk reports “A close encounter of the M27 kind” (posted 15th feb,2008):

“Her partner, and two children aged eight and 12, all saw the object on Saturday at 6.20pm and described it as triangular from one direction and oval from another with no distinct outline. The 30-year-old said: “It could have been the size of a jumbo jet but it was not moving fast, more hovering. As we went past Rownhams we could see it to our left. I did not feel scared”” (extract from article).

Opednews states  “UFOs over Silicon Valley” (posted 14th feb,2008)

“I was out on my patio pondering the mysteries of the universe at around 10 PM on the evening of February 13 and caught a glimpse of a most magnificent sight.

First, I saw a red light, which I originally had believed to be was a star, begin moving! It did various loopy maneuvers and then disappeared” (extract from article).

At Analuisacid.com, a googled translation of the article (can be seen) entitled “Young Bandena photographed a ufo“-Argentina-(feb 13th,2008).

“A curious phenomenon was photographed by a young woman from the city of La Banda (Argentina). She took the photo of the rainbow and review images discovered a strange object in the sky. Informe Noticiero 7. News Report 7″ (extract from translated text from google).

The dailybreeze.com talks about ” The great L.A. Raid Mystery” (posted 20th feb,2008).

20080220_084340_airraide3_viewer.jpg

“Questions still abound over the Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942.

What was it that showed up on military radar screens the night of Feb. 24, 1942, prompting authorities to order a blackout and unleash an hourlong anti-aircraft barrage?Could it have been enemy aircraft like those that attacked Pearl Harbor less than three months earlier? Was it just a weather balloon? Might it have been a UFO?” (extract from article).

In Fox12 news “Meteor is no UFO” (posted 20th feb,2008). “A shocking event just after 6:30 Tuesday morning grabbed the attention of people across the Northwest.

Officials now say it was a meteor entering the earth’s atmosphere, but with witnesses stretching from Canada through Washington, Idaho and Montana, you might have gotten the idea that this falling rock from space was something much, much different” (extract from article).

UK : Fenland UFO witness sightings growing

Posted by dandare on February 20, 2008

ufos

According to the fenlandcitizen.co.uk, “UFOs: more sightings in Fenland” (posted 20th feb,2008). It mentions:

“STORIES in the Citizen about strange lights and possible UFO sightings have prompted a flood of response.

Readers have been in sending in their experiences and thousands have checked out articles on the Citizen website” (extract from article).

alien tag

It goes on to report Mr Chapmans sightings, which started on 9th feb,2008.

He says “”From the ground all you could see was a pulsating light. It was so high up that it looked no bigger than a star.
“”When I looked at the light with my binoculars, I could see a red and blue flashing light and a constant light which, even with the binoculars, still looked like a star.
The object in the sky from 5.30pm to 12am was in different positions. Each time I saw it but I never saw it move.
“On Sunday, February 10, there were three objects all the same as the one the previous night.
“They disappeared one-by-one over the course of the night
” (extract from article).

It then goes on to briefly mention two other witnesses.

Russia to build £3m UFO centre… tourism gone mad?

Posted by dandare on February 20, 2008

Photobucket

According to Ananova.com “Russia builds £3m UFO centre” (posted recently..no actual date though). It mentions

“Authorities in a remote Russian region at the centre of dozens of reports of UFO sightings have started work on a £3 million centre to attract alien spotters” (extract from article). It later mentions

“Now officials want to cash in on the fame with a centre that will include a museum and theme park.

It will include an observatory for people to scan the skies for UFOs, a special trail along sites of supposed UFO sightings, as well as displays and even equipment like infra-red cameras that can be rented by UFO spotters to catch aliens on film” (extract from article).

I just find this a bit sad, as it seems people are jumping on the band wagon, for tourism exploitation, and so on. I have no objection to a bit of marketing, but this seems way over the top and cheesy.

However, i feel the Roswell festival is a good idea, but this is slightly different, as it not all year round.

I dread to think what else might be added to this ‘ufo centre’.

“UFOs over cyprus”?

Posted by dandare on February 18, 2008

Photobucket

In a recent feature article, written by Jean Christou (at cyprus-mail.com) entitled “UFOs over Cyprus?” it mentions :

“THEY never seem to show up on civil aviation or military radar, and Cypriot pilots say they have not seen any.
Yet Cyprus appears to be a hotbed of UFO activity given the number of sightings reported by members of the public.
The latest incident was some two weeks ago over Pervolia near Larnaca, which happens to be near the airport and close enough to the British base of Dhekelia” (extract from article).

It then goes on to recount other sightings too… not sure of the accuracy, and it seems to like to quote from UFO monthly  magazine (that was, was known to over do articles/facts). Worth a blog entry though. 

I do not know much about UFO sightings in Cyprus, to be honest.

UFOs…. What to do?

Posted by dandare on February 17, 2008

ufos
I came across this interesting report, that is available for public release/viewing.

From the Defense Technical Information Centre (DTIC), a report written in 1968, was entitled “UFOs:  What to Do?”.

It mentions

“UFOs — unidentified flying objects, or flying saucers as they are often called — have been on the mind of the public for at least the last 22 years. For a number of reasons, we know little more about them now than we did at the outset.

There exists a great amount of misinformation about the phenomenon not only in the minds of the public, but among educated groups such as scientists as well. It is the purpose of this series of essays to describe various aspects of the phenomenon, make clear my prejudices and the reasons for them, and to suggest a means of proceeding on this interesting and potentially very significant problem.

But first, a few words about the term UFO. J. A. Hynek, an astronomer having continuous involvement with UFO study for over 20 years, defines UFOs as ‘any reported aerial or surface visual sighting or radar return which remains unexplained by conventional means even after examination by competent persons. This definition…specifies neither flying nor objects.’(1) I would agree, but would prefer to replace ‘or radar return’ with ‘or instrumental observation’ and ‘even after examination by competent persons’ to ‘even after competent examination by qualified persons.’ This, then, is the definition I have adopted in the five essays that follow” (extract from article).

The report itself is 46 pages long, and it consists of :

Introduction, UFOs: Historical aspects, UFOs: astronomical aspects, UFOs:The character of reports, UFOs: Phenomenological aspects, UFOs: how to proceed and why, a report form, Bibliography.

You can download the report at   http://handle.dtic.mil/100.2/ADB223765

Even though it was written in 1968, it has some great information….
